In brief: No
Pseudotumor cerebri can occasionally result in visual loss and blindness in addition to severe headaches.
Pseudotumor needs to be carefully followed by an eye doctor and sometimes a neurologist as well. 90% of people with pseudotumor are obese females and weight loss, sometimes modest amounts, can be a highly effective treatment.
